Mistfit's Tavern
If any of you happen to be stuck in Northern Michigan and need a place to rest and have a drink or 7 may I suggest stopping at Mistfit's Tavern.

Where is it located you ask? Why in my basement of course. No sense in having to drive if I'm going to be drinking my self into a stupor.

I have been working on the bar in my basement for about 5 years now. I've done the majority of the work myself, although I have brided the occasional contractor with promises of beer and liquor.

I'm a big sports fan so I tried to keep the majority of the decor headed in that direction.

Stop by some time. I always have a stock of cheap american beer and expensive Kentucky Burbons on hand. Although if I know you are comming I can stock with what ever you like.

That's my dog Dresden...

My Dad worked for NCR (National Cash Register) in the 60's. He was trained as a technician on every mechanical cash register they made. He and I found this one at an auction. We took it a part and referbished the whole thing. What is weird is that when the cash register was new it was painted black. They actually covered up all of that brass! We used muratic(sp?)acid to get it clean.

The register has the sales information on the bottom of the cash drawer. It was sold initially in 1913 to a company in Wolverine, MI (very small town) Some day I want to go spend some time in that town to try and see where it was and who owned it.

If I think of it I will take a close up picture of it. It is really beautiful. The bastard also weighs around 120 lbs (55kg)
